We hope you having a good start of this week. It is a new week filled with new possibilities. After our morning walk and refreshing breakfast this morning we decided to take our bikes to the centre and work at a café in Jordaan. To have the freedom to be able to work at places where we feel the inspiration at the moment is something we highly value and feel so grateful for. It has not always been like this and it is not until recently we have come to truly live our dreams.
It is almost exaclty one year ago when we were in Amsterdam on a shorter stay. We sat at a coffe place, actually very close to where we are right now, talking about our dreams and what we see ourselves do in the future. We have always been certain that we want to have our own business that we run together. We did not determine when it would be because knowing the universal laws we did not want to stress it because one day the timing would just be right. Despite this fact we both have always felt like home here in Amsterdam and we were very clear with the fact that we want to have this city as a base. So while sitting at the café we could totally see and feel ourselves be working at different coffee places. We also had the vision to be one of those biking to the yoga practice with the mats on the back. It is with extreme excitement we are able to say that we are doing it now. We donnot know how many times we have pinched each other in the arms and keep repeating it. We are living our dreams. It was such a particular feeling when we passed the café the other day where we had that discussion one year earlier. We are amazed of how we have been guided by universe to be where we are today. No words can justify our excitment of our continuing journey and what´s next BUT one lesson is learned… always stay present and everything will unfold perfectly when you allow it. There is no turning back for us now.With these words we also want to share a little love declaration we got from one of the fruit & vegetable vendors on our street yesterday. We were standing outside the store we usually go to with our bikes. While standing there one of the guys came out from the shop with a big box of medjool dates. He gives them to us and says these are for you. He continues with a big smile saying that we are always so nice when we come bringing happiness with our smiles and he really enjoys having us as his customers. He felt honored! Plus that he knows that we like dates 😉 (which is true since we go there several times a week to get new ones). This gesture and loving words really touched our hearts and can only be expressed as unconditional love for fellow human beings.
Today we are also featured at beautiful Veronica´s website. Check out the interview here. 🙂
Today´s powerful words by Albert Einstein:
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
